About Walton Lott
Walton Lott has been making music for nearly 30 years. He is currently an accompanist, performer, and teacher in the Boulder area, playing for church and school choirs, the Rocky Mountain Chorale, and giving frequent solo piano recitals. In both performing and teaching, Dr. Lott encourages a fun and flexible approach to music making.
For more than 10 years, Dr. Lott has taught a wide range of students, from beginners to adults, from musicians trained on other instruments to people simply looking to refine a new hobby. Walt encourages engagement with music genres ranging through Renaissance keyboard music, jazz, classical, and even video game music. As a classical pianist, he has focused on the canonical works from Bach to the Romantics, including study of early keyboard music performance on period instruments. Simultaneously, Dr. Lott champions “newer” works, be they Modernist, avant-garde, Minimalist, or works by current composers.
Walt holds a Doctorate of the Music Arts and Masters in Keyboard Performance from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where he studied under Dr. Andrew Willis, as well as a Bachelors in Music from Millsaps College.
